Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-09-20 18:21:04 UTC
Description of problem:

tetex-latex-3.0-6.FC4 includes _some_ packages from preview-latex-common
files.  Namely:


All of this is fine and dandy but the whole documentation is missing, including
such crucial pieces like:


and 'preview-latex.pdf' and other less critical (although COPYING indentifies
that as a GPL software).  Moreover the whole emacs support side is nowhere
in sight making this a rather pointless exercise as "the real meat" here is
on an emacs side.

To make things even worse available somewhere else 'preview-latex-emacs'
package requires, not very surprisingly, 'preview-latex-common'.  So if you
will try to install, or update, that you have a pretty good chance that
you will see missing dependencies and/or conflicts.  Either the whole thing
should be provided or none of that stuff.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2005-09-27 23:25:45 UTC
To make things even more "interesting" on 2005-09-25 a new version 11.81
of auctex showed up.  This one includes a formerly separate 'preview' as an
integral part.  What is more CHANGES file now says:

News in 11.81
   * preview-latex which was previously available separately became a
     subsystem of AUCTeX.  There is no documented provision for building
     or installing preview-latex separately.  It is still possible to
     use and install AUCTeX without preview-latex, however.

So now including into a distribution a small random subset of auctex related
files makes even less sense.

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2005-09-28 06:23:18 UTC
Right, it seems so. preview-latex files will be removed soon.
